Together 4 yes

Today is the day folks. 

Irish people are taking to the polls, to vote on whether or not the archaic 8th amendment should be repealed. 

We have watched heartwarming videos of people returning home, we have listened to brave women share their stories, and we have shed a tear on occasion.

One thing that really struck me (and made me extremely emotional) is the attention the referendum is getting aboard – particularly among celebs.

There's something incredible about seeing people you admire taking to their social media to support a cause relevant to your future, and the future of all Irish women.

Here are just a few of the amazing celebrities who are supporting a change to the 8th amendment – because it's about bloody time!

With less than a week to go until polling stations open on May 25, two opinion polls suggest the 'Yes' side still leads the way. 

Commissioned by the Sunday Times, a poll of 935 people between May 3 and 15 showed a five point increase for those in favour of repealing the Eight Amendment in urban areas. 

A 12 point increase in Dublin means that 67 per cent of voters in the capital plan to vote yes, while 54 per cent of voters in the rest of Leinster plan to do the same.

Meanwhile, a Sunday Business Post poll of a thousand adults between May 10 and 16 shows the 'Yes' side up three points to 56 per cent, while the 'No' side is up one to 27 per cent. 

It seems however that the figures shifted somewhat when people were asked what way they thought their friends would vote. 

Political Editor Michael Brennan, explained:  "Interestingly, Red C – our polling company – has done an analysis asking people how do they think their neighbours or their friends [will vote] and [from] listening to the campaign, what they think the outcome will be… we get a much tighter vote.

"The result from that type of polling – known as the 'wisdom of crowds' – is 56% Yes, 44% No."

The Eighth Amendment referendum will be held on Friday May 25th.


The Late Late Show will hold the first major television debate of the referendum on the 8th amendment this Friday night.

As campaigning for the upcoming referendum gathers pace, representatives of the Together For Yes and LoveBoth campaigns will be in studio to put their cases forward for the repeal or retention of Article 40.3.3 of the Constitution.

Helming the debate, Ryan Tubridy will also be joined by people who will tell their own personal stories around the issue. The debate will also include questions from invited members of The Late Late Show audience, from both sides of the referendum campaign.

Davy Russell touched hearts with his reaction just minutes after winning his first ever Grand National at Aintree earlier this month. He’ll be in studio on Friday night to chat about winning the National in dramatic style, taking home victory for his horse Tiger Roll’s owner Michael O’Leary having fought his way back to top flight racing just five years after he famously parted ways with the Ryanair boss over cup of tea.   

Kerry woman Jessie Buckley has gone from singing for Andrew Lloyd Webber on I’d Do Anything to taking starring roles in huge television series including Taboo opposite Tom Hardy and the lead role in the BBC’s current adaptation of The Woman in White. She joins Ryan on Friday night to chat about catching the acting bug; her new movie Beast; starring alongside Renée Zellweger in the upcoming Judy Garland biopic and why she might have left home for the bright lights but her heart is always in Kerry.

She’ll be telling viewers about their 28 year marriage, living in the spotlight, and what life has been like since Paul passed away.

With a referendum date set for Friday, May 25, canvassing for both sides of the vote is in full swing. 

As signs and banners begin to pop up all over the country, Together for Yes, the national campaign to remove the Eight Amendment from the Irish constitution, begain running a fundraising campaign for poster production. 

However, after smashing their 50,000 goals in mere hours, the campaign have continued to raise funds for the cause.

The goal has been re-set numerous times, to 100,000, 250,000 and 350,000. 

Now, a final figure of 500,000 euro has been set as the goal for the campaigners, who have been blown away at the support for the campaign.

The current amount of funds raised currently sits at €412,000 at the time this this article was published. 

'We are raising €500,000 to continue to put posters across the country, and to fund additional advertising and promotional materials in other key outlets for a positive outcome on the 25th May, reads the description. 

'If we raise more than is needed for posters your donations will go towards other ways to fight for a 'Yes' vote.'

Taking to Instagram, the campaigners also wrote: 'A little before 8am this morning, we reached €400,000 in donations, from over 10,790 people.

'We are so amazed and proud that this is still going!! Please keep the donations coming so we can reach our final goal for this crowdfund of €500,000 to spread our caring and compassionate Yes message.'
